Community Relations Frequently Asked Questions
How can I obtain a Lakers item for my non-profit organization's fundraiser?
To request a donation from the Los Angeles Lakers, please visit our Lakers Donation Request Page and submit a request online at least 6 weeks prior to your organization's event date.
All requests are reviewed one month prior to the event date. Due to the high volume of requests that we receive, donations are made to organizations in Southern California only.
If I send in an item (e.g. basketball, jersey, poster or trading card) can you have a player/the team sign it?
Unfortunately, we are unable to have such items signed. Should you choose to still send an item, we cannot guarantee your item will be returned and we will not be responsible for lost items.
How can I request a player appearance at my event/school?
Lakers player appearances are only scheduled in the Los Angeles area between the months of October and April. To request a player appearance, please send a written request via fax or mail to LA Lakers Community Relations, 555 N. Nash St., El Segundo, CA 90245 on your organization's letterhead and include the type/nature of your event, the date, time, location, and contact name and phone number. Please be as specific as possible and describe what the player's role and duties will be during the appearance. Please allow six weeks for your request to be processed. All requests will be answered within two weeks of your event.
How can I request the Laker Girls to appear at my event?
To request a Laker Girl appearance, please fill out and sumbit the Laker Girls Appearance Request form.
How can I receive donated tickets for my nonprofit organization?
The Lakers Youth Foundation has a limited number of tickets designated for group donations throughout the season. These tickets are to be used to bring a group from your organization to a game and not as individual incentives or prizes. Please visit our Group Ticket Request Guidelines page to get complete details and the form to submit your request.
NOTE: If you are requesting donated tickets for a fundraising event, please follow the regular donation request guidelines by visiting the Lakers Donation Request Page.
